Paddle board question

A friend has gotten interested in paddle boarding. He is a competent kayak paddler.
We both know a couple of paddle boarders, but haven’t done it.
His description is :

  • No wide, slow , beginner boards.
  • No very narrow racing boards.

A board that can be paddled fast enough to get a few miles in without being totally wasted.

He is average size and in good shape.

Thanks in advance .
